If you are going to petco, stay away from "semi-aquatic" labeled plants. In general the anubias species of plants are hardy and requires low light as well as moss and java fern. Java ferns, in my experience, grows really tall. Floating plants like duckweed are easy to care for, but if you have a slime layer on top of the water, things can get messy
